Suspended Doug Martin at Bucs' facility for offseason program

Tampa Bay Buccaneers pick up option on former Texas A&M wideout Mike Evans

In late December, Martin left the team to enter a treatment facility after announcing he violated the league's performance-enhancing drug policy and would serve a four-game suspension.

Authorities declined to identify those killed in the plane until their identities could be compared with the flight manifesto. The Tires airfield said the plane was a twin-engine Piper PA-31 Navajo aircraft and was Swiss-registered.

Martin's physical and mental well-being has been subject of considerable intrigue this offseason, although reports have consistently had him doing very well in all aspects after completing a rehabilitation program early in 2017.

The Buccaneers could draft a replacement at running back, or even sign a free agent (Adrian Peterson, anyone?) and then reassess what they'd like to do with Martin.
